Remember, we're in the energy business...
Not the water business. I think Julianne is right. The emergence problem could be more significant than the planting date focus. Note even as we catch up slightly to the planting tempo, we are falling behind in actual growth. And I heard some rumbling today at my fertilizer "pusher" that some corn planted right before the last big rains, isn't coming up in spots that looked pretty good to me at the time.
In short, we're low on GDU's. And I'm tired of long-sleeved shirts.
[Sorry about the "shouting" - I'm really not sure why that occurs from time to time]
